Egg Shaped Card tutorial

Hi guys,
A little different post today! So many of you have emailed me about how to make Frances card that she made in last weeks post!
Frances has very kindly put together a tutorial for us on how she made it!!
BIG HUGS Frances!!! and over to you..........
Hi, to All!
Since I have received a few requests about how I made the Easter "egg-shaped" card for Digital Delights, I would like to share with you some steps on
how to achieve this.

First, this is the finished card using Easter Bianca

you'll need the Spellbinders Grand Oval dies

 First step, is to cut (2) pieces from the biggest die, you use one for the card base and half of the other to complete the easel style card.
Then fold the first piece in half and the top half fold it again towards the center.

Next step, glue the cut in half portion to the front of the folded piece, making sure you achieve the oval shape.

For decorating, I used the next size die for the designer paper. Then you can embellish as you like.

 Hope this helps you create this easel type card on time for you Easter greeting cards.

If you need more details please let me know.

Can you please tell me the size of the largest oval in this Spellbinders set? I have a Cricut and can cut the oval if I know the size. I have 2 different Spellbinders Oval sets but not the Grand one so if I know the size I can cut with Cricut. Please respond.
